A great 80's cop show. Some of Pare's best stuff,
27 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Houston Knights" is a great 80's TV show. It's too bad it only last two seasons. The pairing of cult actors Michael Beck (Walter Hill's "The Warriors") and Michael Pare ("Eddie and the Cruisers" & "Streets of Fire") is perfect. Pare turns in some of his best acting. Most people say Pare is a wooden actor but Pare really does show some great acting chops in the show.

The plot follows two cops who are partnered up even though they dislike each other and are from different worlds. The usual buddy-cop format has the partners being friendly, but in "Houston Kinghts" it's refreshing to see the two men constantly at odds and always fighting each other. The story lines are entertaining and reminiscent of another 80's cop show "Miami Vice".

The show is hard to find but you can pick up a burned DVD set on ioffer.com. The show should have been the next "Miami Vice"...instead it constantly got rescheduled and CBS didn't support the show at all.
